Moeen Switches Attention To White Ball Cricket After Test Series Triumph

Moeen Switches Attention To White Ball Cricket After Test Series Triumph

Moeen Ali will have little time to saviour England's Test Series triumph over South Africa before turning his attention to white ball cricket.

The Worcestershire all-rounder is in the England squad for the five ODIs and two T20Is against the Proteas through to the back end of February.

England play a one-day warm-up match on Saturday against South Africa 'A' before the first ODI takes place in Bloemfontein next Wednesday.

Another warm-up T20 match will be staged against a South Africa Invitational X1 on February 17 before the T20Is.

England will fly home after the final match on February 21 – and then are back in action in India on March 16 against the West Indies in their opening ICC T20 World group match in Bombay.

It has been a non stop diet of international cricket for 28-year-old Moeen since returning to the England side for the Ashes series after playing for his County in June.

After the end of the ODIs and T20s against Australia in mid September, Moeen flew out to the UAE on September 30 for three Tests, four ODIs and three T20Is against Pakistan.

The squad returned home on December 1 and nine days later set off for South Africa for the four Test series which ended on Tuesday.
